Can you help me pick a wine?
Hi! I usually hang out on the cooking forum, but one of the members suggesting posting here on the wine forum. I had not even realized there was a wine forum! Can anyone here help me decide which of these wines would make the best gift?
I am going to a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend of mine. She loves wine and I thought I would give her a bottle from my cellar. I don't really know anything about wines, just what I like. I tried researching on the internet, but since the ones I have appear to be out of stock, I had trouble finding info on them. I was wondering if anyone here might be familiar with any of the wines I was thinking of. Here are my choices:
- Ridge Lytton Estate 2002 California Grenache/ Syrah
2. ChÃ¢teau Souverain 2003 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
3. Merryvale Starmont 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
I have not tried any of them; I only acquired one bottle of each, so I'm not sure which would be best for such a special occasion. Can anyone make a recommendation?
